Enjoyed taking this ride with the yellow boats. We took the trip to see Atlantis the Palm and Burj al Arab, and it was great. If you like speed, taking on the waves and getting amazing views, you should definatelly go with the yellow boats. Staff was friendly, they even took pictures with us when we stopped. Worth seeing Dubai... More

Priyankara was awesome! He was very knowledgeable & charismatic. Even though I get sea-sick, he was able to help me avoid it with his driving. I enjoyed my experience immensely:)
